Nursing home residents in Somerset take to the sea
Passengers and crew members (residents and our dedicated staff) have already explored the virtual sights and culture of Portugal, and now they are submerging themselves into all things Nice, in France.
Summer long virtual cruise
The two-month long European cruise is taking place throughout July and August, and passengers have their boarding passes printed and ready for eight different beautiful far away destinations.
Explaining why her cabin crew are pulling out all the stops, Captain Natali Edwards (home manager) said: “The Sanctuary Care Cruise is our opportunity to inspire and engage our fabulous residents, while transporting them away from Bridgwater. We have so many wonderful excursions planned and my cabin crew are fully enjoying giving our passengers the five-star holiday they so deserve.
“We are creating the perfect setting for our passengers to connect with new experiences but also reconnect with past memories. It truly is the most amazing virtual cruise you could wish for.”
